Moving professional around

Postby Bobjsa » Sun Nov 06, 2011 6:58 am

I see the professional weighs in at 845lb. I need to be able to move it in and out of a trailer and around on grass.

Just wondering how hard that is going to be and if others move theirs around a lot and how hard that is

Ouch, that is going to be tough to move without a lot of help or a forklift.

I have 8" no-matic casters on my Pro Jr. (675 lbs.) and it moves around pretty easily. I store it in the garage and move it outside to cook...every time. I've hauled it on a flatbed trailer and enclosed trailers without a problem. Good casters are the key.

Braddog, how do you get it in the trailer, up a ramp? How long is the ramp, if you use a ramp?

The enclosed trailer I've been borrowing from a buddy of mine has the drop down door in the rear. So that ramp is probably 6ft long.

The flatbed trailer that I've used a couple of times (borred from my Dad) I just use the ramps that uses for his tractors, mowers, etc. They are probably only 3 ft long. The key to loading on this trailer is to back the trailer agains the incline of my driveway. That gets the ramps almost level.

I'm gonna have to break down & buy my own trailer one of these days! :)
